  refutor: this game is a duplicate of Mario Monticelli vs Fine, 1934
Jul-12-08  Amarande: Are the last moves correct?

Some sources (e.g. Fireside Book of Chess) give 21 ... Qb3 as the last move, while at least one other book (500 Master Games, if I recall) gives 22 Ne3 Qxd3 as the final moves.

What's the source that gives the clearly inferior 22 ... Ne2+? rather than the clear mate in three by 22 ... Qxd3 etc.? (White can only delay the mate by one move by 23 Qxe6+ fxe6, after which: 24 b4 Qb1#, or 24 Be1 Nb3# or Ne2#, or 24 Nc2 Qxc2#, etc.)
